CHEM 401L Physical Chemistry I Lab 1 sem. hr.
The lab experience is designed to compliment CHEM 401 lecture. Experiments include verification of the ideal gas law by digital and U-tube manometers, determination of enthalpy utilizing oxygen bomb calorimeter, examination of equilibrium parameters by titration, and exploring the properties of mixtures and colligative properties. The lab focuses on analyzing research articles and discussing their significant points in order to correlate theories to applications. The students also present materials that demonstrate how the operation of biological systems obeys theoretical physical laws. Prerequisites: CHEM 101-102, PHYS 101-102, MATH 207, Corequisites: MATH 208 or MATH 307. One four-hour lab session per week. Offered fall semester every odd-numbered year.
